Hi everybody, today I would like to talk a little about the different power options you have for your computer. There has been a lot of talk about whether you should leave your computer on all the time or shut it off at night. If you search the topic, you will find answers that vary widely. Today, I am going to share some of my own experiences on the topic.

Hi everybody, today we are going to talk about computer power protection. We all know how much a power blip can inconvenience us when you are in the middle of an important project on your computer. Power surges or brown outs can cause your computer to rapidly shut off or freeze. If you were in the middle of a project, you might loose some the work you were working on or you may encounter something much worse. Under some circumstances, an abrupt shutdown from a brief power failure can cause catastrophic damage to the machine. The damage can come in many forms. Sometimes when a hard drive is shut down improperly, physical damage can sometimes be done to the drive itself. In other instances, the operating system files may become corrupt and a repair install of windows will be in order. In other cases, damage to other components including the motherboard can occur.
